Kabbalah And Science Debate: Are Dreams About The Past Or The Future?

laitman_2009-03_8183In the News (from The Telegraph): “Difficult day ahead?” Professor Allan Hobson is a leading psychiatrist from Harvard [and] his new model, called “protoconsciousness,” argues that dreaming is not an unconscious process, but a conscious one: not a way of working through unresolved issues, but of preparing for the day ahead. Dreams, he says, serve to provide us with worst-case scenarios so that we can practice our coping techniques in safety – a dress rehearsal for the mental and physical challenges of the waking world.

My Comment: Kabbalah considers dreams to be a process of sorting out data from the day that had passed, in order to make sense of and store one’s impressions of the events that occurred.

  1. Simple? Is this, what was or were the customs of the east? Did Hashem oppose or hated and warned Israel not to do these? Rabbi I enjoy your Kabbalah.tv site also. I heard this from a friend! Have a great day!
